The gals will be dressed in full football array including shoulder pads, blocking pads, head gear and shoes and have made up a set of plays which they say will run from the "T" formation. Proceeds of the game will go toward buying Comment—Little Rock sporti writers who witnessed the Blytheville- Little Rock clash last Thursday were pretty generous In handing out bouquets to the Chicks for their showing against the Tigers. Both Jack Keady of Hie Arkansas Democrat and Orvllle Henry of the Gaistte sung loud their praises for the Chicks and an article appearing in the Gazette on the day following the game rated the contest as "one of the best-Played tn-ULtl'e Rock tn tv:o seasons.

One fellow who was nervously chewing .on the end ol his pencil just when the game reached Its most interesting polni bleated out "there goes that wlicet- horse ngaln," and McFarlnnd smashed over tackle for a nine-yard gaiti.

The team was lightly regarded although Drew had brought It along fast toward the clo;e of the 1948 campaign. Charley Conerly remained the nucleus of the squad but his famed battery-mate of the preceding season, Ray Poole, had departed. Then Ray's brother, West Point's Barney Poole, found his Army classroom scrlmnmges too tough and went 51 to 0 and Georgia took Chattanooga 27 to 0 in preparation for the Cracker State classic.
